Thank You Note From Fr. Jose
My dear loving people of Little Flower Parish
I am sorry that I could not see you and say goodbye to you before I left for India, permanently.
I know, it was a shocking news for me and also for you.
Thank you very much for your love and fellowship and your prayers. You are so loving and compassionate and helping during my stay at Little Flower. I will never forget you and your love, and you are all in my heart.
Thank you very much for all your ministries to this wonderful Parish and people. I will desperately miss you and your fellowship. I can't stop my tears falling down when I write this note, I loved you all from my heart and will miss you. I will miss this wonderful parish where I said many prayers and Rosaries, celebrated baptisms and funerals, Confirmation and First Eucharist, and Holy Masses.
I will miss this wonderful parish and people. I left the Church in tears knowing that I will never return to this place. Good-bye everyone and thank you for all your prayers and love and support.
Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you.
Make an offering of the Mass
By virtue of the “communion of saints,” the Church commends the dead to God’s mercy and offers her prayers especially the holy sacrifice of the Eucharist, on their behalf. (Catechism of the Catholic Church.)
This practice dates as far back as Judas collecting a sin-offering for the dead, making an atonement so that they might be delivered from their sin. (2 Maccabees 12:39-45).
Masses may also be offered for the intentions of the living or in thanksgiving. Masses may be requested from Fr. Jose or through the parish office.
